Bi-Weekly – Email update 4 Sept 2021

Here is an update regarding Voice activities and information sent through from Council:

  • First, we’d like you to consider being part of the Local Information Hub Team. Our Huskisson Community Centre will become a Local Information Hub in times of emergency. It is being fitted with solar panels, batteries, and high definition screens among other things. But to make this work we need some people on the ground to be part of the Information Hub team. If you’re interested please RSVP to this email by midday Monday 6th September.
    More information.

Update from last meeting:

  • The Voice is a member of the Jervis Bay Community CruiseShip Coalition. The group is seeking accurate information about the proposal to have cruise ships in Jervis Bay. If you would like to follow or engage in the discussion, decisions, actions then:
    join the Facebook group
    keep an eye on the website
    or contact the group –

    JBCCC asked our Councillors and candidates what their position is regarding cruise ships in Jervis Bay. They replied:
  • Councillors
    Kaye Gartner oppose
    Patricia White oppose
    John Wells undecided
    Greg Watson oppose but supports shelter for ships
    John Levett undecided
  • Candidates
    Christine McInerney Percy oppose
    Jo Warren oppose
    John Kotlash oppose

  • Members of the Voice executive met with 2 SCC staff to consider possible sites for an additional shelter at Moona Moona Creek. Staff came with a suggested site near the existing BBQ at the top section of the reserve; close to the southern steps to Huskisson Beach. A review of Environmental Factors will need to be undertaken. The community vote was 9 for site A (similar to the site selected); 5 for B (near bridge carpark), and 6 for install somewhere else. The shelter will be similar to that below, without a barbecue and will be wheelchair accessible.
